This Bangladeshi Batsman Became The First Ever To Use DRS After He Was Clean Bowled

Published on 13 March, 2017 at 1:08 pm By

Something is clearly not right when a batsman decides to use the limited DRS opportunities after he is clean bowled. Yet anything can happen in this crazy world.

Bangladeshi batsman Soumya Sarkar became the first ever batsman to seek a review after he was clean bowled.

It happened on Day 5, the last day of the first Test against Sri Lanka. The left-handed batsman, who opened the innings for Bangladesh, was on 53.

At that juncture, Sri Lankan medium pacer Asela Gunaratne delivered a beauty that spun off the pitch and went right into Sarkar’s wickets as the latter tried to play a defensive shot.

Clean bowled! It was clear as the light of the Sun above Sri Lanka’s Galle International Stadium. But Sarkar thought that the appeal was for either stumping or caught behind.

So he appealed for a DRS after consulting his running partner Tamim Iqbal. Of course, the review showed what was apparent to everyone but Sarkar.



Twitterati trolled him:

 


Sarkar is pretty decent player. He has one ODI century in 20 matches to his name and is also a fine bowler.

Before Sarkar, Bangladeshi player Subashis Roy had entertained the trolls when he started a premature celebration of the wicket of Kusal Mendis even as the ball went for a six in this very match.
